The Alpine Lustron was originally owned by William Wittmer. The Alpine house is also known as the Marjorie Hiorth House (Wittmer's widow). [map]

The Closter Lustron was built in 1950. It features a "breezeway", a mostly glass, enclosed connecting structure between the house and garage. Harold Hess originally tried to have this house built in Fort Lee, NJ but he could not get past zoning restrictions there. In 2015, the Township of Closter was gifted the house and began restoring it. The house has been rented to a local business owner who is serving as caretaker. [map]
